Default Alignment

Does anyone have the alignment specs for '93 2WD 2.4 short cab and
box? While the specs don't do the truck justice as resulting in
chronic front inside tire wear and a very bothersome high speed (60-80
mph) shudder, I've just replaced several steering parts and now the
alignment is WAY out so I kinda want a starting point at least.

You might try this suggestion. It worked for my older 4X4 and my '99
Taco.

"Get the front end alignment checked. Find a shop with a Hunter
alignment rack. Get a 4-wheel thrust alignment where they precisely
measure the exact direction of thrust of the rears and align the
fronts to that. Have the shop align the toe-in and camber to the
exact center of the spec, and set the caster to the maximum
allowable. The factory specs are too wide for good alignment, so
just setting to "factory spec" is not acceptable. What I listed
above are within factory spec, so the shop has no beef."

Maximum allowable by the parts, or maximum allowable by the
spec's?
